Anyone living in places subsidized by federal govt in WA (USDA, HUD) are at huge risk in the
Medical Marijuana Patients forums; the laws aren't just.. but the logic is sadly solid - federal money, federal rules. just gotta change the rules ...
Whoa ho ho here... I knew and understood the policy behind no growing with section 8 or other federal housing subsidies but POSSESSION AND CONSUMPTION?! That had better be there as a backup clause if they enforce it oh my lord the lawsuit... does anyone remember the story of the case with that one glaucoma patient and the judge who found it to be cruel and unusual punishment to deny a man his sight because the aid he needed was in an illegal plant? Does anyone remember the case in '04 where they arrested a Granny with a couple of now but not then qualifying conditions for posession of 2 oz's? There will be a firestorm if they keep f'in with sick people. Already our healthcare system is a joke but the sad thing is I don't know of any better options, and then for policy we try to regulate the lives of debilitated or terminally ill patients?
I wonder what it would take to form a class action law suit for the possession and no volatile use (no smoking) of medical cannabis even within federally subsidized housing. A multi state suit in fact, because this new twist effects 1 out of 15 patients I have known in my lifetime. If this was brought to attention there could be one helluva class action suit, on the grounds of the eighth amendment but I am no lawyer.
Edit: Yes in washington a patient can have a lot of cannabis at once but saves ones butt if ya can only greenhouse grow or do an outdoor plot and only harvest once a year. Second some patients can use a LOT of medibles.... my old lady used to go through so much indica cooking oil that I made holy crap 4 oz's of thc's (around 14% grade good but not great) worth a month alone! But she has 6 qualifying conditions, she has some tough days.
